The ancestral home of the Beyble family is in the German province of Bavaria. Beyble is a German nickname surname. Such names came from eke-names, or added names, that described their initial bearer through reference to a physical characteristic or other attribute. It is a name for a person who was known as hard-working or industrious. The distinguished name Beyble is derived from the Old German word beber, which meant beaver. In the Middle Ages, anthropomorphic ideas, which attributed human qualities and form to gods or animals were popular. These associations were reflected in folk tales, mythology, and legends that portrayed animals behaving as humans. Beyble is also a local type of surname and there are numerous places named Bieber and Bieberach in several localities in Germany.

The surname Beyble was first found in Bavaria, where the name Bieber was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society of early European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.

In the medieval era, many different cultural groups lived in the German states. There are thus many regional variations of German surnames from that era. Westphalians spoke Low German, which is similar to modern Dutch. Many German names carry suffixes that identify where they came from. Others have phrases attached that identify something about the original bearer. Other variations in German names resulted from the fact that medieval scribes worked without the aid of any spelling rules. The spelling variations of the name Beyble include Bieber, Biber, Bieben, Biebel, Biebele, Bieble, Biebber, Biebben, Biebbel, Biebele, Biebble, Beiber, Beiben, Beibel, Beibele, Beible, Beibber, Beibben, Beibbel, Beibbele, Beibble, Byber, Byben, Bybel, Bybele, Byble, Bybber, Bybben, Bybbel, Bybbele, Bybble, Beyber, Beyben, Beybel, Beybele, Beyble, Beybber, Beybben, Beybbel, Beybbele, Beybble and many more.

Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Beyble or a variant listed above: Jacob Bieber, who settled in Philadelphia in 1732; Johanne Daniel Biebel who was listed as having arrived in Lancaster, Pa. in 1754; Michael Bieber, who came to Philadelphia in 1768.
